For the past decade, Rep. Nancy Pelosi has exhibited her total lack of reality or her anti-America ideology.
The first indications came when Pelosi was Speaker of the House in 2009 and told the American people that Congress needed to pass the Affordable Care Act so we can all find out what’s in it. That’s the same as telling someone to sign a check and you’ll fill in the amount later. It also needs to be noted that since Trump has been President, that there have been a couple of occasions where Pelosi and other Democrats have complained they didn’t have enough time to thoroughly read through and understand what some of the Republican bills contained.
After Obamacare went into effect and millions of Americans saw their healthcare premiums skyrocket by as much as 50% and more, Pelosi kept telling everyone that the Affordable Care Act was still working and that the cost of healthcare had come down. At the time, I questioned on what planet was Pelosi from or referring to, because everything she was telling the American people was an out right lie and if she believed it, then she was also delusional.
Pelosi also made a brilliant statement when she stated that Barack Obama has never done anything for political purposes. Really? His entire 8-years in the White House was nothing but pushing his socialist agenda on America. Obamacare was a socialist program. Re-defining marriage was political. Helping some of America’s enemies was political. His immigration policies were totally political.
Pelosi was one of the loudest opponents to the Trump and Republican sponsored tax reform bill. She often stated that the tax cuts would only help the wealthy and that the average American worker would see no benefits. She also declared that the tax cuts would create an additional trillion-dollar deficit.
When thousands of American workers were given $1,000 bonuses as a direct result of the corporate tax cuts, Pelosi tried to play down the bonuses saying that it didn’t amount to anything and didn’t make that much of a difference to most workers. This again proved how out of touch with reality Pelosi was and is. Many of those workers who got the bonuses were and are living paycheck to paycheck and that $1,000 meant a great deal to those who got the bonuses.
After the June jobs report came out, which showed the lowest unemployment rate for Hispanics, among the lowest for black Americans and continued low unemployment for all of America Pelosi slammed the economic boon when she stated:
“June jobs numbers show what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty and an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent. ‘
“Six months after receiving their windfall from the GOP tax scam for the rich, Corporate America is on track to spend $1 trillion on dividends and stock buybacks, while announcing tens of thousands of layoffs, refusing to give workers a raise and raising costs for families. Meanwhile, hard-working farmers, factory workers and families across the nation are reeling from retaliatory tariffs and trade uncertainty. America should be taking strong, smart and strategic action against unfair trade policies, not recklessly antagonizing our allies and inviting retaliation against the men and women of American farming and manufacturing.”
“The American people deserve so much better than the raw deal they are getting from the cynical Republican special interest agenda. Democrats know that the American people deserve A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future. Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation.” [emphasis mine]
Since when is seeing record numbers of Americans working and bringing more of their hard-earned money home a raw deal? This proves just how delusional Pelosi has become. Evidently, she prefers to see many more Americans out of work, taking less money home and consequently losing their homes and more.
It’s clearly time for Pelosi to retire from the House and return to California where she can have all the delusions she wants.
